Hi all

There seems to be an issue here in the U.K with having CrossFit instructors recognised by insurance companies, its starting to give me a bit of a headache to be honest, theres a few company's that may be interested but i need to know what this means

You will need liability insurance and you will need to name CrossFit, Inc., as an additional insured.

What does this last bit mean? additional insured?

Appreciate your help guys

additional insured just means another entity protected by the policy. for example, a policy would covers you and the owner of the facility you train in. having to name CF inc as an additional insured seems odd to me...

simplest thing might be to get a recognized cert that is easily insured.

There is a post a few down from yours about Sports & Fitness Corporation Insurance.

Don't know if this will help but I thought I'd give it a shot.

Hi.

Greg is right, if not already done, you need to get certified in a UK Govt recognised fitness training program. Your national fitness registration body will have a preferred insurer (cheap).

I suspect no insurance company in the UK (as in Australia) will insure anyone under the nutty American legal system, especially in California.

CA is the only place in the world where you meet someone for the first time, get handed a lawsuit "just in case" then proceed to do business - nah only exaggerating but that's how it seems over here sometimes. (Apologies in advance to any miffed Californios).

Good luck.
